In other words it's working as it should be in any civilised country.

A friend went in one day this week for retirement extension. I asked him to call me when it was done, just out of curiosity. He arrived at 05:00 lot's of parking available. The desk opened at 07:00, the woman asked what order people had arrived. My friend was given #1, his paperwork was in order and he was finished by 07:30. Service like that hasn't been seen in Chiang Mai since we used to report to the little house on the left side of the drive. Congratulations to Immigration, please continue the good work.

Immigration is being able to process expats so quickly because so many expats have already left Thailand, and more are leaving every month. 😞

We didn't have decent experience here in Chiang Mai either for many a year which is why people are posting positive comments.

 

Hopefully you'll turn will come.

Agree. I posted my experience last month, the first to report on retirement extension based on monthly income. It ran to 16 pages of discussion. Lost in the discussion was the fact that I walked in after 9am and was out by 12:30, including a trip to the Bangkok Bank at Airport Mall due to my own misunderstanding. I believe (that time) I parked across the road and paid 20 baht. Pfft! Who cares? I have parked inside the gate several times for TM30 and re-entry permits since Jan 1. I didn't expect the new facility to work this well, and I'm sceptical about its capacity for the future, but so far, so good.

Wish I had known it was me all along ???

Its the small minded people that take offence to reading something you dont agree with.

Live with it, because you will come across 100opinions a day from everyone thinking they are right.

 

You mean that open minded people agree with everything that they read ?

Hi all,

I'm not a cop lover (far from!), and I've been experiencing the CMImm mess for several years, whether at the airport some years ago or at the bloody Promenada, but I have to say that I had a real shock yesterday morning: went to the new airport office with my wife just around 7.45 am for the annual marriage visa extension, well prepared for a long wait and some new hassels. A parking place was waiting for me in front of the entrance (plus 1 or 2 more), and once inside the building, I could feel a change: quiet atmosphere (although many people), no more of these deafening loudspeakers, and ...smiling staff (still obviously painful for some of them: not used to yet!)...Got my queue number and was called about 1/2 hour later, IO very fast, allpaperwork OK (right order, b&w photocopies, blue ink), only some signatures not at the very right place (they have to find something, no?), all done in 20 minutes, 10 more for the mugshot and 5 for the 90 days report I luckily had to do at the same time, and at 9.30 am I had my breakfast in town: really, hats off!...

I still wonder if it is the beginning of a new era or just my lucky day: good experience anyway!...

The only beginning of a new era will be when they stop the nonsensical 90 day reporting, but I won't hold my breath.
